ABSTRACT
The article explores the renewable energy sources of Mexico such as hydrothermal and geothermal resources. It notes conventional hydrothermal plant as the largest source of renewable energy in Mexico, accounting around 22% of the country's installed capacity while the geothermal sources has an installed capacity of 964.5 MW. The country's wind, solar, and biogas resources are also tackled.
